I am having extreme difficulties adding ships. I've followed the tutorial but I have obviously left somthing out since it is not working. Does any one have a simplified method to adding ships regardless of the creater?

heres the simplelist way i know of.

1. PUT UR MODEL INTO THE MODEL FOLDER. 2. THE OPEN UR DEFAULTCORE.TXT FILE 3. FIND WHERE U WANT TO PUT UR SHIP, COPY THE LINE WHICH IS CLOSEST TO ONE WHERE U WANT IT AND PASTE IT BELOW THAT ONE.RENAME THE NAME TO THE NAME OF THE SHIP U WANT.THEN CLICK SAVE. 4. THEN OPEN DEFAULTLOADOUT.TXT AND FIND THE SAME SHIP U COPY FROM BEFORE. COPY THE LINE AND PASTE IT BELOW IT. THEN JUST RENAME THE SHIP AGAIN. SAVE 5. AND THEN CICK PLAY AND ENJOY UR NEW SHIP

This is a small question that asks for a VERY big answer, but I'll try to simplify what you need to do in order to add ships sucessfully. Folders I refer to below are located within the directory: C:/Program Files/Activision/Sfc3/Assets ; Scripts and files I refer to are only examples.

There are 2 lines you need to add to your DefaultLoadOut.txt and DefaultCore.txt files (.../Specs) eg: For DefaultLoadOut: Federation Fed-Dreadnaught Galaxy Galaxy F-TRACTOR-IV:3......etc. For DefaultCore: 40 DN 2600 0 2600 8500 2200 6500 28000 Fed-Dreadnaught Galaxy......etc. Simply, make a new line and add the script where appropriate.

All other files should be placed in a folder with the correct name of the ship (if not yet already). The name should be identicle to files such as Galaxy.gf, GalaxyVL.bmp, GalaxyTI.bmp etc... There may be cases where the ship is called as Galaxy but the game will refer to it as GalSaucer. Whatever the difference, just pay attention to the filenames I've listed. Afterwards, place the folder in (.../Models)

That should be pretty much it. If you have problems, please reply.

Here's a new problem. I have now been able to get the ship I am trying to add to show up in the ship selection area. However, when I try to play it, the game launches into a blank screen. The ship controls are visible but where you should be able to see the star field, your ship and the enemy, there is nothing but black. When I choose the ship I am trying to add as an enemy AI. The starfield and my ship launch but the ship in question is invisible. It shows up on the HU but you cant see it. I feel like I'm getting close. Please help, what am I missing?

No clue, where can I download this model? It's too difficult for me to guide you if I can't exactly see it with my eyes either.

I'll work it out and give you exact details on proper file arrangement when finished.
